We are pleased to announce that registration for the EIT JumpStarter 2019 program has now been opened. EIT JumpStarter is a business idea competition created jointly by EIT Food, EIT RawMaterials and EIT Health, aiming to improve cross-sectoral innovation performance in countries of Central and Southern Europe. We are looking for idea holders and early stage start-ups who have innovative ideas in thematic areas of Food, Health or Raw Materials.

Do you have an innovative business idea and want to learn basic entrepreneurial skills? Apply now!

Deadline for submission is 1 March, 2019, 5 p.m. CET! 

Selected teams will start with a 2-day Business Planning Bootcamp (in one of nine locations across Europe, organized from April to June 2019), which will provide a unique cross-industry environment. They will learn how to get started on building a business, including how to define a business model, build a team, business processes and organizational design. The best teams from each Bootcamp will have a unique opportunity to participate in local trainings organized by EIT Hubs in September and October, and develop concise business plans. Authors of the best concepts will then pitch their ideas in front of a jury during JumpStarter Grand Finals and will have a chance to win up to 10.000 euros.
